Four pilgrims the colonel doctor judge and the writer concluded to take a trip Down to it. Pisgah. It. Pisgah was not the name of the place but i will Call it by that name for the present we were going to visit Squire Johnson. Johnson was not the Squires other name but i agreed after conferring j with him that he should be known to the readers of the Republican and express by the name of Johnson. The object of the pilgrimage is soon stated. The colonel had some land he wanted to look after the doctor was trying to persuade one of the Johnson girls that he would make a Good husband the judge wanted to get away from business fora Day or two and Pilgrim wanted to satisfy himself whether the Cicero Post office was really kept in a cow shed cellar or Well. The Ara nothing had occurred to to Call up such matters and despite All efforts to choke him off the poor old foot sore Soldier babbled away. As he explained afterwards he Only wanted to divert Tho Squires mind and draw him away from a subject that evidently gave him pain. He was favourable to grave Yards in the Hill country. He ii and found the air in such places pure and free from malaria. He had been raised in the country but while a boy had not taken kindly to grave Yards. He had thought in climbing up to some meeting House in t he Hills that they were about As near heaven As he would Ever get he dido t know about that Bot had expressly stated in his will that Howes to to buried on a Southern slope and above Tho Timber line of possible in a healthy Hill grave Yard. If he did no to exactly reach the Promise land he wanted to slumber As near the Gates of the eternal City As possible. Happily the Young folks carried the old Man away at this juncture to learn a play called a chasing the Buffalo a some kind of a song dance. As the song of the cheerful mob in Tho Kitchen settled Down to a steady Roar the audience around the fire place gathered some further information regarding life in the Woods. Arthur.

It was yet Early in april and the North wind had not surrendered its Holt on the country the buds still being closed As tight As clams. I he a a Trail As the judge called it led us Over Low Damp Meadows among shivering Trees by sluggish swollen Brooks and through Many dark and noise some swamps. When we protested the doctor insisted that we must stick to the land Marks or we would get lost. We stuck to them and when ten Miles out from the City were ready to extend the right hand of Fellowship to misery. We had discovered that the trip was not to be much of a love feast. The Day was dark and misty the mire deep Tough and tenacious. The wind voiced every moving Twig with Winters music while in the West according to the doctor were Many strange voices Kindred perhaps of those Little Dombey heard Down by Tho sea Shore.

He was buoyed up by Wrath. A vagrant Crow that dogged our course across the Fields at last attracted his attention. The Clouds wept As the Warrior demeaned the Crow family. He went Back to the Days of the Ark and denied to the Crow the credit of one Good deed and even advanced the theory that it was whip poor wills and not Ravens that carried rations to Elijah. It was dreadful. It is a solemn thin to be cast adrift in the country with a Man who is wilfully malicious in his Choice of words. Imagine our feelings then As we travelled along trying to comprehend the immensity of nature and the colonel pouring out a senseless tirade about crows. If it had been the county commissioners or City Council there would have been some sense in it i done to like the Crow but he is an old inhabitant and for that reason i have some respect for him. I have it the proof of course but have always believed that when the Hills were building the Advance guard of the Crow delegation was loafing around in the Woods waiting for some Man to put out a crop of Corn. Since the Early settlement of the country singing schools debating societies Wool pickings quilting Corn Huskings Apple cuttings spelling schools log Rollings Wood chopping Taffy Pullings Honse Rois Ings House warnings shooting matches big meetings and dances have added much to the pleasure of the people. These gatherings have been the safety valves that have lessened the danger of explosions among the children of the Woods the sunbeams so to speak that occasionally lighted up especially in a Lang syne a the darkness of a life of toil and hardships. Again they were pleasing diversions and afforded t to elders a time to meet and compare notes a time to extend Aid to each other a time for the Young people to consummate matrimonial plans.

Many of these meetings allowed the country fiddler the greatest living autocrat while in his own realm to exercise Brief authority in the Ball room. The judge at this Point suggested that the inaugural Ball had evolved from the country dance. The doctor dissented but the Squire held that it might or might not to even so. He had never attended a National a shoe Down a but had been informed that in its appointments it far excelled any event of that age when David the Sweet Singer the Slayer of Goliad had danced before Baul. However he did not look upon that As evolution but rather As retrogression.

It was dark when we reached the end of of our journey. We met with a Hearty Welcome at the Johnson Home and the bounteous meal that was set before us was a gracious recompense for All the toils trials and tribulations of the Day. After supper we gathered in the sitting room. It was plainly furnished but comfortable. The clock that was a too High for the shelf a stood in one Corner and tolled the passing hours with a chime of Silver Bells. The fire place was deep wide and High. It was the work of an old master.
